Streambank Stabilization

Point of Interest Details

The plants growing along this stabilization wall are in the early stages of a recent restoration project. The gravelly, dry and low-nutrient conditions are challenging for plants to grow, but typical of streambanks. This area was once covered with invasive crown vetch, which crowded out native plants. After the vetch, soil, and associated seedbank were removed and the stabilization structures repaired, native plants were carefully selected to provide a variety of textures, shapes and colors throughout the growing season while also stabilizing the slope.
